A mum has saved her toddler's life after she found her 15-month-old daughter face down in the family swimming pool.

The un-named woman found her little girl lying motionless in the water in the backyard of her Central Coast home in Gwandalan. 

She jumped in, pulled her out and performed CPR.

It's not known how the little girl ended up in the swimming pool, but she was seconds from drowning when the quick-thinking mum grabbed her and saved her life.

She was revived, taken to hospital in a stable condition and is expected to make a full recovery, police said in on Wednesday.

"This incident could have turned out very differently," Acting Inspector Shannon White said.

"Thanks to the quick actions and first-aid skills of the mother, another tragic drowning has been averted."
